It is our privilege to present a special section that includes full pages devoted to the incredible stories of some of the North Bay's leading nonprofits along with profiles of the 20 recipients of the Journal's first-ever Corporate Philanthropy Awards. This is by far our largest effort to date toward celebrating the work of the region's community nonprofits and the companies and organizations that support them.

 The philanthropy awards recipients range from large companies with household names to a cafe that provides free meals to homeless teens putting their lives back together. Recipients were selected in four size categories -- fewer than 100 employees, 101--500, 501--1,000 and more than 1,000 -- reflecting the North Bay's unique mix of small and large employers.

What's so wonderful about this group of recipients is that, in aggregate, it says "We care about our communities." Large, medium-sized or small, each found a way to make their special contribution to help our fellow citizens.

We hope this section spurs even more collaboration going forward. For now, congratulations to all involved.---Brad Bollinger, Business Journal PublisherCorporate Philanthropy AwardsWinners with up to 100 employees
